DAYS 1-5 (NOVEMBER 27-DECEMBER 1)
Improved weather for this final day of the long Thanksgiving Weekend as we see sunshine, a seasonable chill, and a gusty breeze as low pressure offshore moves away and high pressure approaches. This high will move across the region tonight and Monday with tranquil weather. Our pattern is being dominated by a fairly active Pacific jet stream, however, and the next low pressure system will move in rapidly on Tuesday with another round of wet weather. We may get a break of sorts on Wednesday between systems, but a second low will track northwest of the region Thursday and though some of the region may miss out on the warmest of the air, areas to the south and east may get quite mild briefly Wednesday night or early Thursday before a front sweeps through from the west. But before any cold air can get in, the precipitation, which will fall as rain, will be gone.
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 42-49. Wind NW 5-15 MPH gusting 20-25 MPH.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear. Lows 22-27 interior valleys, 28-33 elsewhere. Wind light NW to W.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 42-49. Wind W up to 10 MPH.
MONDAY NIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 25-32 interior, 32-37 elsewhere. Wind light variable.
TUESDAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain. Highs 42-49. Wind SE to S 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy. Risk of rain showers during the day. Rain showers likely at night. Temperatures generally steady 42-49 but may rise into the 50s southeastern areas later at night.
THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy with rain showers likely but should end with breaking clouds later. Temperatures 40s northwest, 50s southeast early, falling later.
DAYS 6-10 (DECEMBER 2-6)
Colder December 2-4 with a few snow showers especially December 2-3. Fair with moderating temperatures later in the period.
DAYS 11-15 (DECEMBER 7-11)
Pacific jet stream should send 1 or 2 low pressure areas into this area with precipitation threats more likely to be rain than mix/snow. Temperatures generally above normal.
